Since 1910, Hallmark has stocked its shelves with a wide variety of greeting cards, gifts, and thoughtful keepsakes. Patrons can write a formal request for better candy from neighbors with Halloween greeting cards ($0.99+ each) or record a personalized greeting card to document a baby's first words in English or made-up baby language. Keepsake ornaments ($9.95+) inspired by the memorable Peanuts comic strip feature Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown decked out in Halloween costumes, and a variety of scrapbook kits and photo albums help to preserve memories without having to pickle the brain. A large selection of wrapping paper, ribbons, and bags encloses gifts in layers of festivity.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
Starting with the purchase of its first rental property in the heart of the Hertel Avenue district, Buffalo City Living has grown to manage dwellings spread throughout the city. The company’s property-management division oversees dwellings of 1–100 units and dispenses technicians daily to handle lawn maintenance, snow removal, or carpet cleaning. For property owners living out of town or inside a complex network of underground tunnels, Buffalo City Living can tackle all the tasks related to your investment, so you can concentrate on big-picture items such as future profit forecasts and appreciating property values.
Queen Street Carpentry founder Jake Elstone uncovers the natural beauty of classic dwellings while imbuing them with fresh concepts to improve their original design. Bestow a sense of relief on unresolved interior blemishes with two hours of labour on repair projects such as patching and painting. Tweak the crooked face of old cabinets, or apply this deal to the first two hours of a larger project. Cabinetry fashioned with solid-wood tops and antique finishes enhance the storage capabilities of any living space, and quietly closing closet doors utilizing Blumotion technology covertly house an extensive collection of stolen hotel bath towels. Upgrade from storing to hoarding with custom organization options that declutter even the most chaotic spaces, or re-invigorate kitchens and baths by resurfacing existing cabinets with stone rather than wood, leaving more trees outside for hugging.
